Kevin Streelman (born November 4, 1978) is an American professional golfer who plays on the PGA Tour.

Early years and amateur career[edit]

Born in Winfield, Illinois, Streelman, who caddied at famed three-time U.S. Open venue Chicago Golf Club while growing up, graduated from Wheaton Warrenville South High School in 1997 and Duke University in 2001, and is a member of the Delta Sigma Phi fraternity.[1] Streelman turned professional in 2001. He played college golf at Duke with fellow PGA Tour member Leif Olson.

Professional career[edit]

Streelman's first year on the PGA Tour was 2008, after he finished 14th at the 2007 qualifying school. He has kept his place on Tour every year since then, through 2014. He tied for the lead after the first round of the U.S. Open in 2008, and entered the top 100 of the Official World Golf Ranking for the first time in March 2009.[2]

In March 2013, during his 153rd start on Tour, Streelman achieved his first victory at the Tampa Bay Championship.[3] He won his second in June 2014 at the Travelers Championship, one stroke ahead of runners-up K. J. Choi and Sergio García. Streelman set a PGA Tour record by closing out his final round with seven consecutive birdies.[4]
